Sotomayor may not be so bad

Sotomayor is being attacked by pro-lifers for two reasons: She is said to be pro-abortion, and she is said to be a judicial activist.

But on each of the three past occasions when abortion was connected to the case before her on the bench, she ruled against abortion.

Am i missing something, or don't these three outcomes tend to show that although she might be pro-abortion or she might be a judicial activist, she can't be both? (Because if she were both, she would probably have come out on the other side of those cases.)
